Wow...These JBL Free X bluetooth earbuds are packed with so many great features I love. There is only one downside to these and I will get to that later in this review. There is no doubt the R&D team did an outstanding job to produce an earbud with great sounding music while also keeping in mind the fit, functionality, and style.
I will start off buy saying right out of the box the Free X earbuds were charged and ready to be synced with my android phone. Pairing them to my phone only took seconds. So back to opening the box....you will see JBL took pride in their product by packing these so nicely. You will open the box to a nice looking round earbud carry case...small enough to fit in your pocket, the Free X earbuds, charging cable, and several different sizes of ear cups.
The Free X earbuds fit nicely into the round carry case with also serves as the charging base. The earbuds sit right inside, neatly tucked in while they charge. I was able to put the earbuds in the carry case into my pocket without my workout pants looking to bulky. I also put them in my gym bag without them taking up to much room. The carry case outer texture isn't too slick, rather it is made of a soft material making it easy to grip.
The earbuds themselves fit comfortably into my ear that once I have them in, they are easily forgotten about. No pain, no hot spots, and they aren't too loose to where they will just fall out. I have jogged several miles, worked out at the YMCA, played Pickleball, and I do my outside chores with these in my ears without any issues of them needing to be adjusted.
The sounds....oh SO NICE!!! Very clear not to tinny and yet there is good bass. I listen to several types of genre, so having highs, mids, and lows speaks volumes to the clarity and sound produced by these little earbuds. With the volume 1/4 the way up, I can't hear anyone talking.
There is only one thing I would have liked to see incorporated with the small carrying case. The carry case lacks the ability to store the charging cable which means it is a separate piece to carry and possibly forgotten. If the case had a pull out cord that retracted back into the case that would be nice. Or the case could be a tad bit bigger allowing me to store the short charging cable inside with the earbuds.
I give this 5 Stars and 2 Thumbs Up because of the sounds quality, the fit, the nice carrying case, and because of how easy they are to use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
